I was pleased to also capture the elusive soap bubble nebula at bottom left of the image.

A splendid image. Can you provide details of the equipment and exposures used to create it?

This image was taken on the nights of 26,28 September and 2nd and 10th of October 2016 through my Megrez 90 refractor with 0.8x focal reducer and Atik 460EX CCD camera with Astrodon 3nm filters. It consists of 50 x 600s in OIII and 33 x 600s in Ha. The soap bubble was not visible in any of the subs, only when stacked and processed.
